Ohio GOP Congressional Candidate Compares Obama To Hitler, Stalin, And Mao

In a controversial tweet on Sunday, a Republican congressional candidate from Ohio likened President Barack Obama to murderous dictators like Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin.

“History has a way of repeating itself: Stalin, Hitler, Mao Tse Tung and now Obama!!!” wrote Dr. Marisha Agana, the Republican candidate for Ohio’s 13th congressional district seat, via Twitter:

After an assumedly offended Twitter user attempted to flag her tweet to a local news station, Agana tweeted further explanation that “the Blood of thousands of unborn children r in his hands…….”:

As Politico points out, Agana’s campaign website points out that the candidate was born in the Philippines in 1960 and was a “subject of the dictatorial Marcos regime” and “suffered through the consequences of a government intent on ignoring its Constitutional limitations.”

Monday morning, Agana addressed an irate Twitter user, apologizing for her “poor choice of analogy” but reiterating that she was referring to the president’s pro-abortion stance:

Agana is set to be the Republican challenger to incumbent Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) in the November 6th election.
